I’m a firm believer that regular strength training is a must for runners of all ability levels, both to aid in improvement and to reduce the risk of injury.
Yet every time I even mention the topic, I seem to get hit with the same questions about strength training for runners:

- When should I do it?
- Why do I need to work out my upper body as well?
So in this video, I’m answering these common questions about strength training for runners.
Hopefully, if you’re not already, you’ll now be comfortable with the idea of adding regular strength training to your training schedule. And if you’re not sure where to start/what exercises to do, I’ve got you covered there as well!
